Okame Cherry

The Okame cherry produces abundant, mildly fragrant, rosy-pink flowers with one-inch-long petals in early spring. The flowers completely cover bare branches, appearing earlier than most and lasting longer than other flowering cherries. Even if you miss its early blooms, the tree remains lovely throughout the season thanks to its orange-tinted green leaves, which turn yellow, orange, and red in the fall.

You can spot Okames in the landscape between the westside of Reservoir running track and the bridle path.
